On Thursday, January 14, at 6:00 p.m. ET, the American Booksellers Association will host a dedicated conversation for members of the BIPOC community.
ABA has been scheduling monthly BIPOC Coffee Breaks for Black, Indigenous, or People of Color booksellers and bookstore owners since the summer. ABA also began its first quarterly BIPOC forum in October for BIPOC members to share concerns and ideas with ABA CEO Allison Hill.
On January 14, the two come together for a BIPOC gathering that combines the Coffee Break with the forum so that BIPOC booksellers can share ideas for future BIPOC Coffee Breaks; needs for ABA services, programming, and support in general; and questions with ABA CEO Allison Hill, ABA COO Joy Dallangera-Sanger, ABA Senior Membership Manager Daniel O’Brien, and other members of the ABA team who will be in attendance.
Booksellers interested in attending should email firstname.lastname@example.org for the session information.
